When you choose a rollator, you expect to be able to use it for as long as possible without defects. Unfortunately, there are several problems with rollators that need to be fixed. Below we will give you an overview of some defects that can occur when you have a rollator and what you can do to fix this!
My rollator pulls to the right
When your rollator pulls to one side, this is probably caused by the frame of the rollator being slightly bent. In this case, please contact your supplier. He can fix this for you.
When the brakes are not working properly, this can lead to dangerous situations! The brakes are often easy to adjust by yourself or by someone close to you. If this is not possible, please contact your supplier.
Wheels not thoroughly cleaned
It is also essential to keep the wheels clean. Over time, dirt can get into the wheels and make them not supple any more. Keeping the wheels clean is something you can easily do yourself, and otherwise you can get help from someone around you.
Brake cables projecting outwards
It can happen that your brake cables are positioned towards the outside. This can lead to dangerous situations because there is a good chance that you will get stuck. Fortunately, this is easily remedied by tying the brake cables together with a piece of string. If you find this difficult, we advise you to ask someone around you for help.
